Dotties World Challenge - Childs Play

The challenge is set on Dotties World is done by Louise and this is what she said
Childs Play
Well Hellooooo!!!!!!! Louise here with your challenge for this week.
I have been busy working on a new download collection, it's a boy themed set....but it's not quite ready yet. I have a sneaky preview for you on my example card but that will have to do for now....sorry ♥
Anyway, in keeping with the child theme.... "This week on Dottie's World I want to see you setting free the child in you. Make a card or something else for a child (using a Charmed Download please) . Let your imagination run wild!"
I found this challenge far from Childs Play I have really struggles with it
I after lots of playing I ended up using a pre-coloured image of Dottie
I mounted this on a silver mat
The paper behind is pre-adhesive card by Quickcutz Tropical Colours
It was just scraps and although it looks like a whole piece of green goes behind the image,
it is just 2 little strips
This was then all put onto the base card a glossy blue card which came from my local shop
This was definitely a challenge and I cannot say I am that impressed with my finished results!
Thanks for Looking

Dotties World & My Time to Craft Challenge

The challenge over on Dotties world has been set by Gunn and this is what she asked for:
Here in Norway, and far north where I live, it is really Autum/Fall now. The nature show us lots of beautiful colors, from green to yellow and orange- and the deep shade of red. I want you to get inspired with these colors and use them on a card, at least one or two of them.And I think gold suits these colors so well, so I want you to use some gold on the card as well. That can be some gold embossing, a ribbon a paper or what ever you want.And ofcourse I charmed digi download has to be included.Let nature inspire you and have fun.
On My Time To Craft the Challenge is as follows
This week's challenge is called 'Halloween Colours'.
So you don't have to use Halloween images if you would rather not - just use a Halloween colour palette
I thought these two went together so I hope no one minds me combining the challenge
The image is Mickey and pre-coloured on to save time
The papers are all mainly scraps that I have in my craft drawers
To finish I put some gold gems in opposite corners
Hope you like as usual any comment always welcome
Thanks for the Challenges
